* ScheduleSlip: The second game took about a year to get off the ground, and they even lampshaded it in an Easter Egg, apologizing for it. The third game looks to be going through this as well.

''Gretel and Hansel'' is a series of Flash games by makopudding on {{Newgrounds}}, in which you play as Gretel of "Literature/HanselAndGretel" fame. The game takes place in a particularly nightmarish world, in which characters from other FairyTales make appearances. In the first game, Gretel overhears her parent's plans to abandon them in the forest and must find enough stones to mark the path back home; in the second, she is separated from her brother and must find him.

** Initially a HumanoidAbomination, apparently. Then it grows [[MultiArmedAndDangerous extra arms...]]
** The stick man must count too. A walking, vaguely-humanoid woodman who delights in preparing food that transforms its consumer into a tree... killing them in very painful ways, such as ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement from pointy branches]] [[ChestBurster bursting out from the gut and]] [[EyeScream the eyes.]]''
** And the face stealers, creatures seemingly made from vines who steal other people's faces, freezing even '''their very souls on the mortal plane until their face is returned.''' Fortunately, [[JustEatHim there are ways to take care of them...]]

* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: The stickman offers you a variety of foods when you fall into his dining room, which you may or may not choose to consume.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: In part 1, shooting continually at Hansel. Considering the very painful and heartrending ways Gretel can die in, the same could be said about players wanting to find all the ways to die. (it's just very painful to watch)

* TooDumbToLive: Hansel, despite being Mentally Challenged he is just too DUMB! There are too many examples to show, but some very prominent ones are that he could literelly swallow a pair of scissors, stand TIP-TOE on a cliff edge, not react to seeing his sister die HORRIBLY and more...
